ABOUT YES AT SWEDEN ROCK FESTIVAL 2003:
In 1969 the self-entitled debut was released and a few years later, with albums such as "Tales From The Topographic Ocean" and "Relayer" they became superstars in the symphonic rock genre. They were often mentioned together with Genesis, even though they had a slightly heavier edge. This was especially noticeable on the more guitar-oriented album "Drama" (1980). In 1983 they had a new start and a big commercial break through, this with the song "Owner Of A Lonely Heart" and the album "90125". The members have been added, left and been switched through the years. They even recorded albums like "Union" with both present and older members participating. They never further developed the commercial side, but instead kept part of it and mixed it with the original symphonic style, which made the 1999-album "The Ladder", a highly pleasant listen. The line-up is today as original as can be. We present: Jon Anderson, Steve Howe, Chris Squire, Rick Wakeman and Alan White. What’s more to say, but – YES!
